Stupid Media Watch: While most American media is roundly behind our troops and doing their best to support them, the BBC, NPR and the New York Times are all working as hard as possible to find the chink in the armor. Yesterday on NPR I heard a question directed at a so-called 'military expert'; was the way the American POWs in Iraq are being treated problematic for the US because of how we treated Al-Qaeda prisoners in Guantanemo. Unbelievable.

Later I heard Sylvia Poggioli chime in a report with how public opinion in Britain is swinging for the war...however, she provided statistics from before the war began but none after, citing only a 'significant increase.'

So when the polls aren't in your position's favor, you gloss over the numbers with a vague but impressive adjective in hopes no one will notice.

Does anyone believe that possibly Sylvia forgot her notes?
